Why we are there

The conflict in Ukraine has caused the world’s fastest growing displacement crisis since World War II and will require continued urgent responses to immediate humanitarian needs as well as investment in recovery and reconstruction. 

What we do

DRC’s coordination structure around the Ukraine crisis response is adjusted and reinforced to provide for sufficient attention to all elements of engagement. This includes a continued, adapted response in Ukraine, engagement in neighbouring countries, wider Europe, and in Denmark.

DRC as such applies a holistic programmatic approach in its Ukraine crisis response.

Currently, continuing to contribute to the emergency responses, DRC is developing strategies to respond to needs in Ukraine in the longer term, with activities in four out of five DRC core sectors:
